We are aware or not of the quality of our work?
You value the hours spent in front of computer created?
I mention all this because i meet daily projects and bids are very low. Provided win, do not care to be enslaved. Yes, gentlemen! As I hear! Their pass in front of computers for hours to deliver an excellent job for a price of $ 30 (The entire job). This is amazing!
As you can well give their logos, their artwork, their cards, their photo retouching ... etc
In this way, customers have come to demand more and more work for less money ...
Worst of all ... is that still bidding very low. Two logos, $ 30? 24 Avatars, $ 50? 100 photos released, $ 50? A full page, $ 70? We should join this cause and offer a logo not for less than $ 60 or illustration not for under $ 100 ... and so upward. We can not compete with each other if 10 employers are pushing for a logo for $ 49 and others (who do value our work for $ 70). Everyone from now we should bid high, as I said before, and the next bid in the same competition, if you see your partner who has put $ 70 the same price or more., but never down! So the employer must choose the one you like but do not take a job for free.
Think they will benefit tomorrow with your new venture and we going to do? This is our future and we must protect it!
